The Danish-Swiss wind turbine optimiser ROMO Wind is presenting its patented iSpin technology for measuring wind in front of the rotor at this year’s HUSUM Wind trade fair. Today, Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Kristian Jensen visited the stand. He got to know more about the innovative measuring method and watched a demonstration of the iSpin functions.
The Minister visited Danish companies presenting themselves at the trade fair and emphasized the relevance of the German wind market: companies that strive for a major role in the fast growing global market need to show their presence in Germany, said the Minister.
ROMO Wind‘s iSpin System is available on the German market since 2013. iSpin uses proven ultrasonic technology to measure wind where it first hits the turbine – directly at the spinner. In this way, operators gather accurate information on the wind conditions in front of the rotor. This enables them to check whether their turbines are aligned for the best possible yield. At the same time, the data allow for optimised wind farm management and load reduction, which prolongs the total life of the turbines.
